Hi, I am new to Hi-Fi and need advice in terms of matching components. I auditioned the CEC CD3300R which was coupled with Opera Classica Mini Speakers, ASL 1300 tube amp and Transparent The Link speaker cables and interconnect. The sound was well balanced, instruments & vocals, accurate with good details and nice soundstage. Dire Straits sounded fantastic. However, as I don't want to own a tube amp, I have decided to go for a Copland CSA 8 demo unit. Auditioned and liked it. As I am not sure as to how the CSA 8 would sound with the above combination, this is where I need your advice. Purchase yet to be done. What do you guys think of this combination in terms of amp and interconnect? I mainly listen to Rock Ballad, 80s music, jazz instrumentals.
